Aside from the folks mentioned in Head RAZZ's Official Take, the cast also includes BOND villain Mads Mikkelsen, former PUNISHER Ray Stevenson, and Juno Temple, who was also in DIRTY GIRL this year -- but I doubt she'll be a Razzie contender.  

Question: Does nepotism also apply to husbands and wives*?

*Anderson & Jovovich.

Worthless Sh*t Anderson is one of the worst directors of the last few years. That being said, this looks HILARIOUS! In fact, if I have enough time this weekend, I might see it just to make fun of it. Then again, I have to see Paranormal Activity 3 and The Ides Of March as well.

The opposite of exaggerating is usually known as underemphasizing. Sometimes I call it "insaggerating" because "ex" and "in" are opposite word bases.
 
About The Three Musketeers 2011... Once again, I knew it would be bad when I saw Paul WS Anderson's name behind the camera. One more adaptation of the Three Musketeers story will bring the total to 60! As Weird Al Yankovic once said, "grapefruit diet. Lay of the Three Musketeers! grapefruit diet. Until my big booty disappears."
 
This film is a Frankenstein's Monster of classic literature. How could they bring back Orlando Bloom? And Milla Jovovich, who I'd estimate starred in 5 of my past Bottom 40ers.
 
And I can't decide which would disrespect the original author Alexandre Dumas worse: Tacking his name onto a bad adaptation of his work, or not crediting him at all thus letting the audience forget this is what became of his work.

Anderson's best reviewed movie so far has been DEATH RACE!

What do you mean by "back"?

I didn't know that Jovovich was also married to Luc Besson. So she's a pro in nepotism!

Though Death Race 3000 got panned by critics, I know a lot of people who LOVED that movie, which I don't understand at all. 

 Bloom is back from the shell he crawled into after At World's End
 
Jovovich and Besson were only married in the late 1990s. This reminds me of those who'd argue that the Bible shouldn't define marriage because then all past divorcees' marriages would be dissolved.

Worthless Sh*t's version of Death Race was an atrocity. The only Worthless Sh*t movie that I've liked was Event Horizon. Everything else is crap.

Let's work out this equation then...
 
Popular 19th Century literature + wasted A-list cast + Britain's answer to Michael Bay + CGI overloads = ALL FOR ONE AND RAZZIES FOR ALL!

Anyone think Milla will FINALLY win a Razzie for this?
Oh, by the way, just to remind people, this is not the first time a version of the Musketeers is up for Razzie nominations.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I assume you are referring to Chris O'Donnell's Worst Supporting Actor nod for playing D'Artagnon in the 1993 Dizz-Knee version of MUSKETEERS ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108333/awards -

I wasn't talking so much of Milla's chances as much as I meant how our voters won't like that she's nominated for this instead.

R.T.:"It plays admirably fast and loose with Alexandre Dumas' classic tale,but in every other respect,it offers nothing to recommend...or to set it apart from the many other film adaptations".

I personally regard Dumas original tale as being extremely disrespectable anyway. But why Hollywood considers it necessary to remake this film every year that ends in an odd number is bewildering. Here is a new idea for punishing people suspected of planning acts of terrorism: Make them watch every adaptation of this film ever made, back-to-back-to-back-to-back...etc.

Sounds like unbearable whining to me...first of all, nobody wanted another remake of the Three Mousekateers in the first place. (Mousekateer roll call! Cubby! Annette! Roy! etc)
 Second, if nobody sees it, her career can only be better off in the long run. Third, of course the studio is going to invest more in Twilight Saga: Breaking Wind Part 1. They have a lot more invested.

Nobody? You don't think Alexander Dumas is a great writer? Have you no respect? This may not be a good adaption, but to say "nobody" wants another Three Musketeers (That's Musketeers, not mouskateers) is down-right ignorant, and disrespectful.  

This film may be not do very well at the U.S. Box office, but around the world it's done well so far. Is American the only country that's important in your eyes or something?

Actually, I read that it's production budget was supposedly $75 million!  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Keep in mind that releasing any film also includes, in addition to the actual production budget, the costs of prints and promotion, which in the case of THREE MUSKETEERS could reasonably be estimated to be around $25 million (or more). Thus, even accepting whatsthepoint's figure of a $75 million budget, means the total outlay for this film is in the neighborhood of $100 million -- meaning my point that it could not, at this point, be adjudged to have been "successful" is still a valid one.  

P.S. My claim about this film's budget was merely an informed assumption -- But here's a http://www.movieinsider.com/m6407/3/three-musketeers-3-d/ -

It says 80 million, and not 81 or higher (keep in mind that's only estimated). Some websites have it figured at 75 million. So if it makes over 100 million overseas, it wouldn't be a huge failure, just a disapointment. And the only likelihood of there being a sequel, would be if it had been released theatrically only in other markets, and went straight-to-video in the U.S.

It's so sad, Waltz is infinitely more talented than the movies he is doing post-Basterds indicate. Anyone who can win an Oscar playing a character that Tarantino himself didn't think anyone could pull off is exceedingly talented. Hopefully he's good in Django and the new Polanski film.  It's too bad that this one sucked. But in retrospect, not the least bit surprising.

I meant to ask if this will be a contender, but it seems obvious it should at least be considered for Worst Remake/Rip-Off.

Perhaps you can point out where, an any of my posts, I offered that Dumas was not a good writer. What I said was that in my opinion, The Three Musketeers is a wildly overrated work (which doesn't even necessarily imply that it isn't great. I just don't like it). By contrast, works like The Man in the Iron Mask, Twenty Years after, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Vicomte de Bragelonne were marvelous. Even Shakespeare had some bad work...the upcoming movie claiming, yet again, that he did not actually write his own plays not withstanding. That, incidentally, is nonsense.
 
Have you no respect? This may not be a good adaption, but to say "nobody" wants another Three Musketeers (That's Musketeers, not mouskateers) is down-right ignorant, and disrespectful.
Interesting comment from someone who obviously missed the "mouseketeers" joke.  However, if you can find 20 people out there who sincerely wanted a 58th adaptation of this work, bully for you.  While you are at it, maybe you can find a few people who think the world needs another adaptation of A Christmas Carol.
 
Judging by the numbers it is generating at the box-office, I will stand solidly behind my statement that nobody wanted yet another adaptation of this story.

I'm one of those that actually wants to see one of those Christmas Carol renditions...because I'm a huge Christmas nut...but one that is TASTEFULLY done (which I doubt Hollywood can ever do again)...

Undoubtedly, the wait for yet another adaptation of A Christmas Carol will be a short one. As for tasteful, don't hold your breath.

Time for my first review of a Paul Worthless Sh*t Anderson movie.
 
Some of the action scenes are decent. Key-word some. The only decent action scene worth talking about is Milla Jovovich killing some of the guards. Ray Stevenson and Christolph Waltz give "OK" performances.
 
The movie really drags! It's less than two hours, but it felt longer than The Tree Of Life. The special effects were absolutely atrocious, but there's not enough to justify this going into the next paragraph. Logan Lerman was stiff in the lead role. And why was Til Schweiger in this? And why was he in New Year's Eve too?
 
Why does Worthless Sh*t still have a career? The only good movie that he's done is Event Horizon and, if I'm in the mood, I'll put Mortal Kombat with it. Milla Jovovich gives a terrible performance and she's only here because she's married to Worthless Sh*t. But, worst of all, is Orlando Bloom. He's only good as an elf or a pirate, but only once. It's not his worst performance because Elizabethtown still exists though. And his beard is funny.
 
How did this make Tarantino's best of the year list? Grade: D+
 
Next-up: The Darkest Hour!!
